Spider-man: Web of Shadows
8 June 2012
Excerpt: The intro of Spider-man: Web of Shadows looks fantastic and promises a great experience in the Spider-man universe. We see a tired and despirited Spider-man walking on a skyscraper through the debris of fights between Shield soldiers and the offspring of Venom.
A Slow Starter That Eventually Hits Its Super Hero Stride
22 September 2009
Conclusion: Concept: A combat-focused game that gets old quick
Graphics: Camera orientation problems and animation glitches abound
Sound: The voice acting is as bad as it gets
Playability: Repetition is the name of the game.
Excerpt: Playing super hero games usually always goes something like this: get excited about a new game featuring some of the best super heroes around; play said game and realise there's nothing super about the gameplay; and turn off game wishing you hadn't bought it in the first place.
Excerpt: I was so anxious to get my hands on this game. Seeing the trailers of the new ground-to-wall-to-air fighting system looked awesome. I am, by the way, a big Spidey fan, so a new Spider-Man game for the PS3 had my attention immediately. In general, the appearance of New York is nicely done.
Summary: I know Spider-Man likes to joke around, but he should start taking his video game career more seriously. Web of Shadows plays like a bad joke.

Conclusion: Little else can be said about Web of Shadows except that unlike previous Spiderman titles, this one is intended for teenagers instead of younger kids, and it doesn’t help it along. Boss battles are not memorable and the few cameos other superheroes make are not particularly worthwhile.
Excerpt: Unless you live under a rock, you've no doubt heard the famous lines "Spider-Man, Spider-Man. Does whatever a spider can." In the Marvel universe, this statement is absolute truth. But for some reason, video games haven't been able to allow Spider-Man to do whatever a spider can.
Summary: A deadly symbiote invasion brings total devastation to the streets of New York City in the next Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, where players have ultimate control over the city’s salvation and Spider-Man's destiny.
Excerpt: Imagine you’re Marvel. I mean, imagine you’re someone who works for Marvel, or you’re a director of the company. You have this little comic book called Spider-Man that has been quite popular over the years.
